Is It Time for Service on My 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Ford E-250 Econoline radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Ford recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Of all the parts in your 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline engine, the water pump is one that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it.

Common Ford E-250 Econoline Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 1987 Ford E-250 Econoline radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • What does the coolant light on my Ford dashboard mean? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Do Ford E-250 Econoline radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Ford E-250 Econoline radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
